Aviation Attorney Proves Comedic Skills at Stomach Cancer Charity Event
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Law Firm Newswire) March 15, 2011 – Who knew a lawyer could be good at comedy stand-up routines? Aviation transaction attorney Stewart H. Lapayowker recently entertained the crowd with his comedy at the Debbie’s Dream Foundation “Night of Laughter” fundraiser. The event was held at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Improv Comedy Club and raised $22,000 at the sold-out show. Lapayowker’s firm was a presenting sponsor.
Debbie’s Dream Foundation (DDF) is dedicated to defeating stomach cancer and increasing funding and research to eradicate it. Through advocacy and public policy efforts, DDF strives to help patients and families get the help they need. The foundation began when Debra Zelman was diagnosed with stage IV stomach cancer in 2008 at the age of 40. She saw a huge lack of information and resources, and after practicing law for 16 years, closed her practice and poured all her efforts into the Debbie’s Dream Foundation as president and director.
“We are so grateful for Stewart’s generous contribution to our Night of Laughter fundraiser at the Improv,” said Debbie’s Dream Foundation director Debra Zelman. “He made a fantastic stand-up comedian at the event. He had the whole crowd laughing.”
Attorney Stewart Lapayowker is very active in his community and sponsors DDF’s efforts to find a cure for stomach cancer. He also makes a contribution to the Corporate Angel Network every time a corporate aircraft transaction is completed for a client. Corporate Angel Network helps cancer patients who need treatment at special facilities with empty seats on corporate aircraft.

U.S. registered aircraft operating within the UK or the EU are subject to being assessed a value added tax of up to 26% of the value of the aircraft.

For many years, large U.S. registered aircraft were routinely imported into the UK at a zero rate of VAT for free circulation in the EU.

- The 2-Minute Warning and Business Aviation
A friend of mine asked me if I watch professional basketball on TV. My knee-jerk reaction was to joke that I only watch the last 2 or 3 minutes because that’s when the game is exciting and is won. Then it occurred to me that some think that the closing call of a business aviation [...]
